Collect used stamps for Meningitis Now

4th December 2015

This is one of the simplest ways to raise money for us

Collect Stamps letterbox

We are asking you to collect your stamps throughout the year - Christmas time being the perfect time to get started. 

Collect as many stamps as you can and send to Meningitis Now, PO BOX 6107, Stromness, Orkney, KN16 9AB. 

We are very lucky to have Citadel Stamps generously offering their services free of charge to make this happen. Please ask friends and family if they would like to help too - it doesn't cost a penny and anyone can do it!

Other ways to help and get involved

Raise awareness wherever you can. You could: 

  • Hand out signs and symptoms cards to family, friends, colleagues, doctor’s surgeries and/or schools
  • Spread the word about our fundraising campaigns and challenges
  • Host a Time 4 Tea
  • Organise a Toddle Waddle
  • Participate in a sponsored challenge
  • Organise your own fundraising event
  • Make fundraising applications

John Lewis’ community fundraising scheme

This month we are asking for your help with John Lewis’ community fundraising scheme. 

Here’s how you can help:

Collect a charity application form from customer services at your local store and fill in the details. You may need to emphasise that Meningitis Now is a local charity, working within the community to support individuals and their families who have been affected by meningitis, as well as raising awareness and funding vital research that will benefit all local communities.

Please contact Amanda Harris on or call 0345 120 4885 if you need any help with your application.

You can also ask friends and family to do the same, and remember every penny makes a difference
